    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, learn great customer service skills, good insurance after full time for a year, learn about inventory practices, hands on merchandising, etc

    Cons

    Night and overnight shifts, hard to get full time, can be challenging when dealing with customer issues, random work days.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be as fair as you can when scheduling. If one or two people always get the weekends or holidays off it can be frustrating

    Pros

    The pay is decent, store managers can be friendly, decent benefits for employees, we get 401k options, we are given paid lunches.

    Take time to talk to associates and find out why turn overs are so high.
